Death stings. Nurses know this. One of our NCF staff lost her father last week. We all felt the sting and grieved with her. Those who witnessed the death of Jesus were deeply stung by it, but God redeemed the pain of the cross for his glory! That's great news.
This Easter, as we reflect on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, we sing Paul's words in our hearts, "'Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?'" But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ". (1 Corinthians 15:55, 57)
He is risen!
He is risen indeed!
